Boeing and Japan Airlines (JAL) have announced a firm order for 21 super-efficient 737-8 jets to support fleet renewal and optimization of JAL single-aisle operations. The 737 MAX will provide JAL with greater range and fuel efficiency, reducing both fuel use and carbon emissions by 15% compared to the airplanes the airline is replacing. In addition, the 737 MAX is a quieter airplane, creating a significantly smaller noise footprint than the airplanes it replaces. JAL intends to begin introducing the airplanes into its fleet from 2026. This partnership with JAL is the latest milestone in Boeing’s longstanding relationship with the airline, which aims to move closer to its 2050 carbon-neutral goals through a combination of these super-efficient aircraft, operational innovations, and new fuel-saving technologies.
